DTF nabs pair on meth charges
Two people are behind bars after Covington County Deputies went to execute four felonies warrants on a man on Point A Isle Road.
Drug Task Force Agent Josh Hudson said Wednesday afternoon that deputies went to 26489 Point A Isle Road to serve four felony warrants from Pike County on Eric Glenn Padgett for fraudulent use of a credit card.
Hudson said when they arrived they found methamphetamine, glass smoking devices and a bag of marijuana.
There was also a small child at the home.
Hudson said that Amber Pinkston admitted to using drugs in front of her child.
Padgett was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana first degree and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held on a $23,000 bond for the new Covington County charge and there is a hold on him for Pike County.
Pinkston is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts chemical endangerment because she’s three months pregnant.
She is being held on a $513,000 bond.
Additionally, agents found a firearm in the home.
Hudson said charges from that would come from the feds, whom they had already notified.
